Respondus LockDown Browser is now integrated with our Canvas LMS. Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment in a learning management system (LMS). Quizzes or tests created for use with LockDown Browser cannot be accessed with a standard browser like Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. When students use LockDown Browser, they are unable to print, copy, visit other websites, access other applications or close a quiz until it is submitted for grading. If you’d like to take a look at student view for LockDown Browser, Respondus has created a great overview video for students. Respondus also provides a Student Quick Start Guide to the tool.

All users (students and faculty) will need to download Respondus from the UMKC Download address. You may be asked to log into Box with your UMKC credentials. The file will then download in your preferred web browser. To view the step-by-step instructions for this tool, visit the UMKC web support page “Installing Respondus 4.0.”

The UMKC Online team has created additional support pages that may be of assistance to you:
